Terrain: The terrain of the entire Štajerska region is made up of steep-sloped vineyards and narrow, wind-rich hill valleys. A diverse geological soil composition, consisting mainly of sand and clay with marl in the lower layers. The vineyards spread out over the finest wine-growing sites of Haloze Hills. 

Farming: Organic farming; in conversion to certification 

Vinification: Kobal Sauvignon Blanc is made from perfectly ripe grapes shaped by both old school and modern technological approaches in the cellar. The wine is barrel fermented with no added yeast to preserve local terroir and cold-fermented to preserve for varietal aromatic character and freshness. 36-hour skin maceration and lees ageing are responsible for the wine’s depth and structure. Aged on lees in stainless steel tanks until bottling when it was lightly filtered and only a tiny amount of sulfite added. 

Tasting Notes: The bouquet is reminiscent of passion fruit, gooseberry, blackcurrant and grapefruit. Pleasant acidity and minerality on the palate are followed by the discreet creamy aftertaste that is typical of wines matured on lees. 

This is a wine for drinking within 2 years of bottling. Serve it chilled with light fish dishes, grilled and steamed vegetables, charcuterie, young cheeses, pasta with white wine sauce, chicken and turkey.
